Brlliant take on smell connecting 3 different stories...
22 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie succeeds in making the audience smell what actually the characters are smelling...I think the movie wins there itself...

...the movie is basically comprised of 3 short stories...1st one is about a Pune girl on the verge of marriage...she wants to find her love and parents want to find groom for her...its not a typical treatment and works big time due to actors as well...2nd one is about a man who is always on medicine n the day when his so called wife, who has left him for more than 2yrS, comes to meet him...again amazing acting...3rd one exposes the problem we have in rural Maharashtra where a women in her periods cannot do daily chores and no one can touch her...Neena Kulkarni pulls this off with ease...

Kudos to Schin Kundalkar and his team... Definitely a must watch...
